Chessfactory: hall of fame
The purpose of this project is to explore the lichess database for interesting games and positions. As an example, I created my list of interesting parties by various criteria (see below).
Originally, Chessfactory is my study web chess project, inspired by lichess.
This project has same name prefix, because also study and inspired by lichess :)
I scan lichess database(there was 602M games at march 2019) and here is my results:
List games where defeated side has piece advantage
Find longest uncrossed knight path in real games
Read more about this problem(wikipedia)
List games, where mate reaches by piece promotion, and winning side has less material
game from picture
List games by strongest knight fork (by fork-ed material)
List games sorted by average ranged pieces(B,R,Q) capture distance:
List positions where side can do a lot of captures?
Game from picture
List positions where 8 pieces stay on one board-column
List games ended by en passant mate
Your turn :)
